Ontario Agriculture Week

Ontario is a province overflowing with fresh, locally-grown, high-quality food and products, and from October 4 to 10, we will be celebrating Ontario Agriculture Week. 

Ontario Agriculture Week is dedicated to celebrating the abundance of food our farmers produce, the Ontarians our industry employs, the rural communities we support and the economic engine we fuel.
